Data Type

Description

Unit

Optional

WdUnits

The unit by which to move the ending character position.

Count

Optional

Variant

The number of units to move. If this number is positive, the ending character position is moved forward in the document. If this number is negative, the end is moved backward. If the ending position overtakes the starting position, the range collapses and both character positions move together. The default value is 1.

This method returns an integer that indicates the number of units the range actually moved, or it returns 0 (zero) if the move was unsuccessful.

This example sets myRange to be equal to the second word in the active document. The MoveEnd method is used to move the ending position of myRange (a range object) forward one word. After this macro is run, the second and third words in the document are selected.

If ActiveDocument.Words.Count >= 3 Then 
 Set myRange = ActiveDocument.Words(2) 
 With myRange 
 .MoveEnd Unit:=wdWord, Count:=1 
 .Select 
 End With 
End If
